Description

Washington State has been a national leader in long-term support and services among all 50 states. Despite these successes, we continue to suffer from the crisis of caregiver shortage. Such a challenge will only get worse as baby boomers begin to enter their later years. The good news is that many entities in our state are working hard and creatively to strengthen and grow a quality long-term care workforce to serve our elderly at home.

A research team from Western Washington University shares current conditions of the home care workforce in the state overall and Whatcom county specifically, also proposing specific advocacy efforts that individuals and families within our community can engage in to help solve this challenge.
